Sian Lovatt – #FabulousYoungFarmers
Sian Lovatt is a 25-year-old equine blogger and Young Farmer. She is a keen rider, having owned and ridden horses ‘practically all her life’, and has become involved in the farming community more recently. However, due to her lifelong love of horses, she has always had a country lifestyle, so it comes naturally to her to don a pair of wellies and get stuck in at Young Farmers.
Sian is a member of Spilsby Young Farmers in Lincolnshire. Spilsby is a seemingly small but friendly club with their key events throughout the year being their Welly Disco and dinner dance. She joined Young Farmers about a month ago after moving away for university, when she returned home she had lost touch with old friends and a colleague suggested Young Farmers. Sian decided it was ‘worth a try’ and has loved it ever since.
‘someone at work suggested joining Young Farmers to get to know some more people in the area I decided it was worth a try and have enjoyed it ever since!’
For Sian, Young Farmers is a great place to get to know the local people and businesses. Young Farmers is a great organisation, as so many people, myself and Sian included, make lifelong friends and form brilliant connections for their work and social lives.
Young Farmers is particularly important in rural areas where Young People sometimes have fewer options on what they can do and where they can go with friends.
‘Often you find in these small villages that there’s very little to do for young people with similar interests, so Young Farmers is great for bringing people together and allowing them to share knowledge, interests and much more – but whilst still having fun!’
Although Sian has only been a member for a short while so far, she has already put her name down to judge a Hound and Hunter competition which she says she is thoroughly looking forward to.
I am sure that Sian will have many more endeavours with the Young Farmers as she continues to build new friendships and try new things. You can keep up with her on her blog or by following her on Twitter (@SLEquineJourno).
